Among the "Presentations, guides, and tutorial materials"
indexed at

this seems relevant:

The XML Schema Specification in Context
    by Rick Jelliffe, Academia Sinica Computing Centre
    2000-02-24 draft only
    compares XML Schema with XML DTDs, SGML DTDs, HyTime, and perl
regular expressions 

Also, if you like to "Use the Source, Luke!" you might
like to study a tool that converts DTDs to schemas:

	A Conversion tool from DTD to XML Schema in perl; open source.
